It's true! In 1991, there was a full feature-length Hollywood mystery/thriller film with Bill Pullman and other well-known actors filmed entirely in Binghamton. The title of the film: "Liebestraum":

According to the plot summary on"Liebestraum" is:

Two affairs, a generation apart. Nick, a professor of architecture in upstate New York, comes to an Illinois town to be with his birth mother in the final days of her illness; he was adopted and has never known her. On the first day, he runs into Paul, a college friend, whose construction company is demolishing an old, downtown department store where a murder-suicide happened 30 years' before. The building is of beautiful cast-iron construction, so Nick wants to study it before the demolition. Paul introduces Nick to his wife, Jane, and over the next four days, their attraction grows as Nick explores the old building, attends his mother's bedside, and unravels the past. "

What's most interesting to me, is that even from the trailer, you can see several recognizable local buildings, and 100% of the movie was shot here in Binghamton (then edited back in Hollywood), before being released to the public in theaters. The film was written and directed by Mike Figgis, known for such movies as: "Leaving Las Vegas" and "Cold Creek Manor".  "Liebestraum" has a 6.0/10 rating on IMDB, and is rated R.
